Plateau United has revealed that it would continue from where it stopped off in the first stanza of the season, when the second stanza of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) resumes on May 21, 2017.
Speaking to LEADERSHIP Sport, the media office of the club, Albert Dakup, said the club’s sterling performance in the first stanza was no fluke and, though the club was under no pressure to certify this, it would not sit on its oars when action resumes.
“We intend to continue from where we stopped in the first round by improving the welfare of the players through the increment of their match bonuses and travelling allowances. Also, management is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that the new welfare regime is maintained through prompt and timely payment of salaries and other contractual agreements reached with the players,” he said.
The club acquired the services of seven more players to shore up its squad, in order to withstand the intensity of the second round of the NPFL.
In another development in training on Tuesday morning, the club’s general manager, Pius Henwan, charged the players to pick a point, at least, in their rescheduled week 18 game against defending champions Rangers International in Enugu tomorrow.
Henwan, speaking to the team through Dakup, reminded the players of the double match they were promised and assured them of the club’s readiness to pay-up “immediately after the game.”
The Jos-based club are currently sitting atop the 20-team log with 35 points from 18 games.
